I've given both snow and the other one, forget what it's call, in pods like a couple times a week. Mooshy likes to dig for the peas and doesn't always eat it all. I looked at it like an activity to do, just like string beans. She's on and off about liking these things though so I give it to her if I'm having it for myself as well. Not one of those things I buy only for her.
 
Awesome! I bought some because I was thinking of trying them out myself self...I love them in restaurants and wanted to see if they liked them. Thanks so much!!
 
I tried this and everyone loved the corn and tomatoes. Madea not so much but she did like the corn a little. Minerva can't have it again. She coughed a couple times and I was worried she was choking.

I'd be concerned about corn with Madea too. If it was a choking hazzard to Minerva, it could be to Madea. Corn is so not necessary with the very high sugar content and it being a starch like potatoes which are a no on the list so I never bother with it for Moosh.
 
What things can guinea pigs eat every day? ( other than hay and pellets of course)
 
Hello! Please advise the diet for guinea pig with chronical urinary problems. Now he eat hay, pellets (meadow and mountain grass) + carrot, apple, salad.
 
What kind of urinary problems? Stones, or infections?

Stones not find. Expected chronic cystitis or unknown pathalogy. He looks cheerful and healthy, but I afraid remission for incorrect diet.
 
I'm not sure diet changes would do much for chronic cystitis. Some pigs have interstitial cystitis, but there's not much known about how diet affects it. In people, some foods can cause a flare up, so you might try removing one item at a time from his diet for a couple of weeks and see if there's any improvement. Just don't remove his hay or his vitamin C source.
